The plant was among the winners of the prestigious German Design Award, which is awarded every year by the German Design Council. Founded in 1953 on the initiative of the German Federal Parliament as a foundation, it supports the economy by creating brand added-value through design. In 2023, Kleemann's MOBISCREEN MSS 802(i) EVO screen for coarse elements impressed the jury with its well-thought-out overall concept. The jury commented: "The MOBISCREEN MSS 802(i) EVO is designed for uncompromising output, performance and flexibility, which is expressed in a comprehensible manner functionally and formally by its manifestly well-thought-out design concept."

The screening plant had already landed another design prize at the end of last year in the US. The Good Design Award is awarded every year to the most innovative industrial, product and graphic designs from all over the world. The jury based their decision on the following: "The characteristic design of the plant picks up elements of the existing Kleemann design and develops them further. The plant demonstrates performance and reliability together with state-of-the-art technology. This makes it recognisable as a complete plant Kleemann at the first glance and creates a high-value overall picture of the brand Kleemann that sets itself apart from the competition."

Kleemnann says the new MOBISCREEN MSS 802(i) EVO represents a new generation of screening plants and is a successor of the MS 15 Z, and adds that it consciously places the focus on the user perspective. 

With its proportionally controlled running gear, the plant can be quickly relocated either by a low-loader to the job site or within the building site. Apart from other improvements of the new MSS 802(i) EVO, folding of the side discharge conveyors without the need for disassembly clearly reduces set-up times. Increased application variability is provided by a hopper rear wall that can be folded to three heights, which permits feeding of crushing plants with a lower discharge height. The large offer of screen surfaces and simple adjustment of the screen parameters, which make rapid adaptation of the MSS 802(i) EVO to a very wide range of feed materials possible, reduce set-up times and thus personnel requirements and costs. The screen casing angle with a wide adjustment range from 15.4 – 20° makes optimisation of the screening capacity possible.   Special highlight: the simple and fast conversion from 3- to 2-way grit. The MSS 802(i) EVO can therefore be used to produce and discharge two or three final grain sizes and the conversion is fast and simple.

An intuitive plant control with automatic start reduces the risk of operating errors and saves learning times. All relevant functions can be operated from a safe distance, which offers high work safety. Further user-friendly aspects include very good access options and intelligent cleaning solutions, which minimise downtimes caused by maintenance. With all of these solutions, Kleemann placed the focus on the typical workday of users. This also applies to the standard series LED lighting, the optionally available extended premium lighting of work areas or the generously proportioned work platforms. 

An optimised material flow is a central aspect of all screening plants. Only if all components are tuned to one another can high productivity with minimised operating costs be achieved. Kleemann says its new screen demonstrates what screening plants of the latest generation can achieve. This includes a wide crusher discharge conveyor on which, like all of the other conveyors, the speed can be steplessly adjusted, as well as a large material transfer system to the screen deck for optimum utilisation of the screening surfaces. High discharge heights and thus higher stockpiles thanks to the optionally available extended crusher discharge conveyor and telescopic side discharge conveyors guarantee ideal processes on the building site. 

The new MOBISCREEN MSS 802(i) EVO can be operated through line coupling with all EVO and PRO crushing plants integrated in the process and safety system. Special application flexibility is provided by the stockpile probe required for the process coupling, which can be placed on any discharge conveyor of the plant.
